Figure 7-11. Effect of undersampling on effective one-dimensional (1D) peak capacity. Reconstructed 1D chromatograms for a hypothetical sample containing 100 randomly spaced compounds show that sampling at a rate of 5 samples per 1s (ts = 0.2 1s) yields a separation with 51 peaks. Increasing the sampling time to 2 1s (Panel B) or 4 1s (Panel C) yields 37 or 23 peaks, respectively.
